How bout' those toes?
Today I stared at all the sutures in my right foot: the ankle joint, toes and the heel all showed off their fresh surgical incisions. As the bandages were peeled away from the left, the toes were straight not curled under, but straight showing off my toe nails. "How about those toes, Dr. B?" "Does everything look alright?" I ask. He tells me enthusiastically, "they look great!" The left foot needed a compression sock. I'm able to place all my weight on my left foot, yet it's still very sore--tender where the rods were once running through my foot to stabilize the ankle.
